Compiling Rainmeter app and plugins 5 Years, 11 Months ago  
I'd like to do some work on a Rainmeter plugin, but I'm having trouble compiling the source.

When I try to compile the main Rainmeter.sln project, it has trouble locating a "Library/resafx.h" file. If I try to compile just a plugin (like PluginWindowMessage.vcproj), it has trouble loading a "Library/rainmeter.dll".

I'm using Visual Studio C++ Express 2008. Is there a better ide/compiler to use with Rainmeter, or am I just not configuring something correctly? Any advice/tips would be appreciated!

I solved the problem.

In case anyone encounters a similar problem: the missing header file (afxres.h) isn't included in the Express edition of Visual Studio. I downloaded that separately and put it in the /Library folder and everything compiled perfectly.

You can get the file from:

gmpedia.org/wiki/Afxres.h

Thanks again!
